Do I have prostate cancer? I have zero symptoms and urine tests are fine but I do have a tiny sensation in the tip of my penis?  Started after Lexapro (escitalopram)

No.: The sensation you describe does not raise any suspicion for prostate cancer. Given your age (25), there is no advantage for prostate cancer screening at this time. If you continue to feel this sensation and it is bothersome, work with your physician and see if it may be related to your Lexapro (escitalopram) prescription. ...Read more

56 yr old female visible blood in urine. Avelox 14 days. Blood gone in 4 days. 2 weeks later visible blood. Avelox april 15 again + canesoral combi pack. Does antib stop blood if cancer? Scared.

No, it would not: Antibiotics are not likely to cause bleeding from a cancer in the bladder to stop. Be sure to have your urine tested and cultured(this is the test that specifies the exact bacteria causing infection, as well as which antibiotics will be effective against it) each time you have urinary symptoms. If blood continues to appear in spite of appropriate antibiotic treatment, see a urologist. ...Read more
